  • "What a wonderful week! We loved...- sleeping by the pool under the fans, - flying kites on the beach, - watching the shadows of the live oaks thought the shuttered windows, - walking to the shops for ice cream, lotion, whatever. Thanks for your thoughtfulness & warm hospitality. We want to come again"

  • "Happy New Year! Eleven of our family spent a relaxing week here during the holidays with lots of laughs, great excursions and really good food. ..We embraced the close proximity to town and the water. .. We even ventured to Savannah for a night. Playing games in the evenings brought us all closer and bonded generations of ages from 17 to 75! The people in St. Simons are some of the friendliest we’ve ever met on our many travels! "

  • "The Radford family celebrated the 80th birthday reunion of June Radford (Mom). This was our first reunion of the whole family since 2000. The Strachan House made the perfect site for our get-together. The patio by the pool was a wonderful place for everyone to sit and talk in the evening. St. Simons Island is also a great place to visit. Kayaking, bike riding, walks, and the trolley tour were big hits. Also visited the light-house, the cemetery at the Episcopal Church near Ft. Frederica. And we can’t forget that Mom proved her prowess at miniature golf at the age of 80."
